Wow, there was an earthquake in the U.K. , only a day or so after a big quake in Indonesia. Is the world rearranging itself?

Then again, it's the season for wild variations in temperature and general conditions. This weekend brings everything from the Iditarod in Alaska to the Swamp Buggy Races in Florida.

In slightly related news, did you know that every state has a different Arbor Day? (I didn't, until now.) Some states have already had theirs; most are in April.

For people interested in more spiritual and less tangible matters, here's a page of the most beautiful monasteries on the planet. (Oddee is a great website - check out their other features!)
